Mackenzie Cancer Research Group
The Mackenzie Cancer Research Group (previously the Angiogenesis and Cancer Research Group) was established in 1998 and is one of the research groups located in the Department of Pathology, University of Otago, Christchurch, New Zealand.
We are interested in the pathology of human tumours and in identifying the genetic changes that give rise to cancer.
Our research focuses on the molecular regulation of tumour growth, metastasis and response to therapy.
The Mackenzie Charitable Foundation has supported our research group since 2010, when they endowed the Mackenzie Chair in Cancer Medicine, currently held by Bridget Robinson.

The Mackenzie Cancer Research Group hosts the Cancer Society Tissue Bank.
Postgraduate Student Opportunities
Students form a valuable part of our group.
We are looking for enthusiastic and highly motivated post-graduate students to do their PhD, BBioMedSci (Hons), or other post-graduate degree in our group.
Scholarships for postgraduate study are available and depend largely on academic merit, including those from the University of Otago.
Currently, there are several cancer-related projects available, and prospective students are encouraged to contact one of our researchers directly.
